Recently declared a Unesco World Heritage Site, the Jodrell Bank Discovery Centre is a great day out for all the family. You can explore the wonders of the universe and learn more about the workings of the Lovell Telescope.
The iconic Lovell Telescope became the largest the world had ever seen when it was completed in 1957, it’s still the third biggest telescope of its kind today and continues to search the stars, helping humanity pick away at the mysteries of our universe.
As well as a site of vital scientific research, the Jodrell Bank Discovery Centre is an increasingly important player in Greater Manchester’s cultural heritage. Already a perfect day out for schools and families, it’s also the home of the awesome Bluedot Festival and has secured funding from the Department for Culture, Media and Sport for a new discovery centre.
